Man boobs are an ever growing problem (hehe) here in Korea, enough to warrant a disturbing subway ad
여유증 = female breast symptom
Men no longer have to suffer with enlarged milk secreting breasts.
I’m suddenly remdinded of that scene in Meet the Parents where Focker blurts out that he could milk anything with nipples and Jack replies “I have nipples. Can you milk me?”
Perhaps he can Jack… perhaps he can…
The ad contains a link to http://cafe.naver.com/foxps
The red text on the site says that they’ll be performing the procedure from July to September every Friday from 7 to 9PM and the blue text says that it’s only for men. Guess there’s not a high enough demand to sustain a whole business. I imagine that the rest of the article contains information similar to this wikipedia article on gynecomastia, but currently can’t be bothered to attempt a full and likely poor translation.
Here are some better pre- and post-surgery shots
My first second thought (after wtf!?!?!) was that those man boobs are not even that big and could likely easily be reduced in size if the guys worked out for a few weeks. An image search on any engine will quickly show cases much worse than those pictured above.
Also, why stop at the boobs? Excluding the thirth guy, they could use a little bit of lipo as well.
While discussing the topic with my grrrlfriend, she naturally shifted it all to start poking fun by telling me I had man boobs, that it could be serious! (a sign of chronic liver disease, etc.) and I should think about getting the procedure, thus trying to ruin my fun.
Anyway, the whole thing further illustrates to me both the wide acceptance of plastic surgery here and the fact that, however irrelevant, I’d much rather see Hyori, or another nubile, shirtless in this ad a la
